THE AMERICAN WAY (Continued from Page Two) a time wnen tms nation races um most crucial test of its entire history at, a time when it needs its maximum strength. Such foibles in a 'nation do not fortify it a-gains etither its external t or internal enemies. Moral stamina and manly virtue in a people are the characteristics that give them unity of action and the spirit de corps necessary to repel any attempt at invasion of curtailment of their priceless liberties. , ,; The new - Congress is just now swinging into action. Most of the Senators and Representatives of both major political parties elected last November are fired with a zeal to enact legislation that will be the most beneficial for the most of the American people.

We must throw up our guard against this small min.- ority of our law makers. ' As cus- tomarily, they will be both loud and glib, hrowing off an aura of plausibility, ut lying underneath their high-sounding proposals will be the socialistic brab to puncture our strength and eventually destroy us. But there is a bright side to the picture.

Social Security Administration Beginning in 1955, a new "figure" will appear on the Social Security horizon $4,200 per year. Raising the annual earnings base from $3,600 to $4,200 represents one of the more important changes in law recently enacted. Millions of workers will be affected beneficially. What significance does this change have for the. average working person? It means that wage increases received by labor in recent years can now be reflected more adequately on individual J wage records. Many workers will have a greater percentage, if not all, of their earnings credited for tsocial faecurny purposes, inus, their future benefits will be more proportionate to actual earnings during their working lifetimes. Not everyone will be affected by this new $4,200 limitation. Those earning less than $3,600 in a year; will continue to pay tax and receive wage credits as before. Workers earning over 3,600 annually will contribute up to $12 more per year in Social Security tax, depending on their incomes. The maximum tax for any worker will be raised from $72 to $84 per year. Employers will v match this increase and will have the added responsibility of continuing Social Security deductions from pay checks until the new $4,200 wage maxumum is reached. What will the working man or woman gain from all of this? In applying the new benefit formula, the inclusion of all earnings up to $4,200 can make a difference of as much as $10 a month in benefit payments at retirement. This is a material amount in terms of economic planning for the future. A representative from this office will be in the City Hall, McComb, on Feb. 10, at 9:30 a. m. Woodpecker scalps, elephant tails, tobacco and beaver skins all have been used as money. 4 't ( 1 L , ? t Mr -tit .
